Blast Compression Blankets
Blast suppression blankets are used to suppress the blast fragmentation from an explosion that can cause damage and injuries.
These blankets are particularly useful for suspected IEDs contained in packages up to briefcase size and pipe bombs.
The multiple layer ballistic material is enclosed in a heavy-duty nylon, water-resistant cover which is fitted with lifting straps and clearly marked DANGER.
Both blanket and circle fold into a compact, easily carried holdall bag. This soft armour can also be used where there may be weight limitations i.e. vehicle protection – floor and bulkhead protection.
